Captivating ...a must read!

'Every woman was once a little girl. And every little girl holds in her heart her most precious dreams.She longs to be swept up into a romance, to play an irreplaceable role in a great adventure, to be the Beauty of the story. Those desires are far more than child's play.They are the secret to the feminine heart.

And yet ---- how many women do you know that ever find that life?As the years pass by, the heart of a woman gets pushed aside, wounded, buried. She finds no romance except in novels, no adventure except on television, and she doubts very much that she'll ever be the Beauty in any tale.

Most women think they have to settle for a life of efficiency and duty, chores and errands, striving to be the woman the "ought" to be but often feeling they have failed. Sadly, too many messages for Christan women add to the pressure. The effect has not been good on the feminine soul.
But her heart is still there. Sometime when she watches a movie, sometimes in the wee hours of the night, her heart begins to speak again. A thirst rises within her to find the life she was meant to live---the life she dreamed of as a little girl.

The message of Captivating is this: Your heart matters more than anything else in all of creation. The desires you had as a little girl and the longings you still feel as a woman---they are telling you of the life God created you to live. He offers to come now as the Hero of your story, to rescue your heart and to release you to live as a fully alive and feminine woman. A woman who is truly captivating.' 1

If you need healing, restoration, joy and life! I highly recommend that you stop what you are doing and go get this book today. Read it this weekend!
